If it is not enough for you to have the robot that sweeps the floor of your house, know that soon you will be able to control it with your voice, you were not even the last Jedi on Earth. Alexa, turn on the vacuum cleaner will be one of the commands available soon in Italy for all the domestic robots of iRobot, which will be easily managed by one of the Amazon speakers already on the market.
In fact, Italian users – explains the company – thanks to this new function, will be able to manage their Roomba connected via Wi-Fi in their native language. You can ask Amazon Alexa – on speakers such as Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Spot – to activate, pause, switch off and return your robot to the charging base.
This new voice control will be one of the many features already offered by the iRobot HOME application, available on the App Store for iPhone / iPad and Google Play for Android smartphones and tablets.
Colin Angle, CEO and president of iRobot, explains iRobot actively engaged in finding opportunities within the connected home to improve the experience between users and our robot vacuum cleaners. Voice-activated devices are very successful on the market and it is clear that consumers want simpler ways to interact with a growing number of products and technologies inside the home.
